National titles awarded on day one of Junior Track Nationals



Colorado Springs, Colo. (June 30, 2007)-National champions were crowned on Friday as the 2007 USA Cycling Junior Track National Championships kicked off at the 7-Eleven Velodrome.

Hayduk clocked a winning time of 36.656 seconds to best four other competitors and eclipse the junior world time standard of 38.847 seconds. Her mark also set a new national record for her age group, surpassing the old record of 37.280 previously held by Missy Thompson.


Behind Hayduk, Dana Feiss (Telford, Pa./Young Medalist Cycling) earned the silver medal with a time of 38.740, while Crystal Nunnemacher (Allentown, Pa./JVR Sports) captured the bronze with a mark of 40.621.

In addition to the internationally recognized junior category of 17-18-year-old riders, several younger divisions also began their quest for national titles. Competing in the first of several events that will be factored into the calculations for an overall title, athletes between the ages of 10 and 14 competed in the 500-meter time trial.
